Introduction Diesel engine fire pump controllers are designed to automatically start a diesel engine driven fire pump upon detection of a pressure drop in the fire protection system. A diesel engine fire pump controller provides automatic & manual starting and stopping. An automatic start is controlled by a pressure transducer or by remote automatic devices as deluge valve. A manual start is controlled by remote manual button or by controller pushbutton. The automatic shutdown option provides a 30-minutes automatic stop after automatic start once all starting causes have returned to normal. The diesel engine fire pump controller includes two battery chargers to maintain the engine batteries continuously charged.

Types of Diesel Engine Fire Pump Controllers

FIRE PUMP CATALOGUE NUMBER

MODEL NO. EXAMPLE : GPD-12-120

Model Prefix GPD

Battery Voltage 12 : 12V 24 : 24V

Incoming Voltage 120: 110/120V 50/60Hz 220: 208/240V 50/60Hz

Methods of starting/stopping The controllers are available as combination automatic / non-automatic with provision for manual or automatic shutdown (automatic shutdown only possible after automatic start)

METHODS OF STARTING AUTOMATIC START The controller will start automatically on low pressure detection by the pressure sensor when pressure drops below the cut-in threshold. The controller must be in automatic mode.

MANUAL START The engine can be started by pressing the CRANK 1 or and/or CRANK 2 push button, regardless of the system pressure, when the Main Selector switch is in the HAND position. The Fuel Solenoid Valve will open as soon as a CRANK button is pressed and will remain in this state.

REMOTE MANUAL START The engine can be started from a remote location by momentarily closing a contact of a manual push button.

REMOTE AUTOMATIC START, DELUGE VALVE START The engine can be started from a remote location by momentarily opening a contact connected to an automatic device. The controller must be in automatic mode.

SEQUENTIAL START In case of multiple pump application, it may be necessary to delay the starting of each motor in case of water pressure drop to prevent simultaneous starting of all motors.

FLOW START, HIGH ZONE START The controller can be started by opening/closing a contact on the FLOW/ZONE START/STOP input.

WEEKLY START The engine can be started (and stopped) automatically at the preprogrammed time.

TEST START The motor can be started automatically for a preprogrammed time by pressing the run test button.

METHODS OF STOPPING MANUAL STOP Manual stop is done by pressing the STOP push button. Note that pressing the stop push button will stop the engine only if all starting causes have disappeared. AUTOMATIC STOP The automatic stop is possible only after an automatic start and this function must be activated. When this function is enabled, the motor is automatically stopped 30 minutes after the restoration of the pressure (above the cut-out threshold) given that no other run cause is present.

FLOW STOP, HIGH ZONE STOP If the controller has been started by the FLOW/ZONE START/STOP input and that the signal has returned to normal, the motor will be stopped given that no other run cause is present.

EMERGENCY STOP The emergency stop is always possible in any running condition and is done by positioning the main selector switch to the OFF position.

Home Home (Membrane button) Home

The home page displays all controller statuses and important values of the controller. All voltages, currents, pressure, engine state and status, as well as all timers and cranking sequences. The entire background will become red if an alarm becomes active. This feature will help the user identify a problem even at a significant distance away from the controller. A: Navigation bar which contains general information about:

- The language (the language may be changed by pressing on it) - The page title - The alarm banner (warning and alarm messages may be shown) - The date and time (adjustable in the Configuration page) - The temperature. It can be changed to Celsius or Fahrenheit by pressing on it.

B: The battery charger state. It may become one of three colors and also explicitly describes the current battery charger state.

POWER UP – Green BULK – Green OVER_CHARGE – Green FLOAT – Green CHARGER_FAIL – Red NO_AC – Red BATTERY_FAIL – Green

An orange rectangle between the battery and the charger will appear periodically. It is the boost mode. This charging modes enables the boost function on the charger, allowing a shorter charging time of the battery. Also, it

Page 23: Operation, Installation & Maintenance Manual for Diesel ... · PDF fileOperation, Installation & Maintenance Manual for Diesel Engine Fire Pump Controller Automatic Controller Model

23

allows the controller to detect a missing battery, and/or a problem with the charger. C: The battery. The battery will be red if it is in failure and green otherwise. The first line of data shows the actual voltage of the battery in volts and the second line shows the actual current in amperage. D: The engine start contactor. It will be either open or close. When closed, the color of the contactor will be green, showing that the contactor is active. E: The starter gear. It represents the actual step of the cranking sequence. The counter inside indicates the step timer, ranging from 15 to 0 seconds. As there are two cranking modes, “waiting for crank” and “cranking”, the gear will alternate between yellow and green, allowing the user to know exactly the state of the cranking sequence. Between the two contactors, a timer is visible. It indicates the current step inside the cranking sequence. It will stay on a step during the 15 seconds of wait and on the 15 seconds of cranking and then will count on until the sixth step, which is the end of the cranking sequence. F: The diesel engine. It will be grey if the engine is stopped, green if an “Engine Run” signal is detected and red if a “Fail to start” occurred, after 6 unsuccessful cranking attempts. Pressing on the engine will redirect the user to the “Last Service Statistics” page, which monitors all relevant statistics concerning the controller since the last service. Inside the engine two major alarms are represented; the “low oil pressure” alarm and the “engine high temperature” alarm. These alarms will stop the engine only if it is running in test mode. When active, the appropriate alarm symbol will light up, clearly indicating that the engine has a problem. G: Three alternating square images representing three theoretical speeds to help understand the actual speed of the engine. The grey gauge shows the needle at zero RPM when the engine is stopped, the green gauge shows the set engine speed when it is running and the orange gauge shows the needle in the danger zone, representing the overspeed alarm. Please note that you need to set the HOA selector switch at the “OFF” position in order to reset the overspeed alarm. If the RPM meter option is enabled, a digital RPM counter will appear above these images, to allow a precise reading of the actual RPM of the engine. H: The “Fuel solenoid valve” that controls the flow of fuel in the engine. When the fuel solenoid is activated, the valve will be horizontal, green and the yellow representation of the fuel will flow through the entire pipe. When the “Stop Solenoid valve” is activated, the valve will rotate vertically, become red and the yellow representation of the fuel will stop at the valve, indicating that the fuel does not flow through anymore. I: Representation of the motor starting or stopping cause. A green capsule will indicate the reason why the motor is running. Possible choices are:

LOCAL – This start cause is triggered if the engine is locally started directly from its own control panel and the option is enabled. MANUAL – It receives a manual crank request from one or both of the manual crank membrane buttons while the selector switch is the “HAND” position.

REMOTE MANUAL: Manual engine starting activated by a remote start contact.

DELUGE: Automatic engine starting activated by a deluge valve. AUTO: Automatic engine starting activated by pressure drop.

REMOTE AUTO: Automatic motor starting activated by remote equipment FLOW: Automatic motor starting activated by a signal in the FLOW/ZONE START/STOP input.

HIGH ZONE: Automatic motor starting activated by a signal in the FLOW/ZONE START/STOP input.

WEEK TEST: Automatic motor starting activated by a scheduled test.

MANUAL TEST: Automatic motor starting activated by the run test pushbutton.

Page 24: Operation, Installation & Maintenance Manual for Diesel ... · PDF fileOperation, Installation & Maintenance Manual for Diesel Engine Fire Pump Controller Automatic Controller Model

24

AC FAIL – AC Fail will count the time following an AC Failure and at the end of a predetermined timer, will start the engine with an AC FAIL request.

A red capsule will indicate the reason why the motor is not running despite the fact that a request is being made. Possible choices are:

OVERSPEED– This start cause happens when the controller receives a request to start, but the engines sends an “Overspeed” signal, thus preventing its ability to effectively start the engine. FAILSTART – This start cause happens when the controller receives a request to start, but a “Fail To Start” alarm is active after a cranking sequence failure, thus preventing its ability to effectively start the engine.

LOW ZONE: A not running lower zone controller prevents the motor from running. This functionality is optional. LOCKED: An interlock signal is preventing the motor from running.

J: The discharge pressure gauge. It allows for a precise reading of the actual system pressure. The red box on the upper left corner of the gauge indicates the value of the Cut-In set point and the green box on the upper right corner represents the Cut-Out set point. These values will also be represented by a red and green line on the gage, allowing a quick comparison between the actual pressure and the set points. At the bottom of the gauge, a digital indicator shows the actual discharge pressure represented also by the needle of the gauge. Just right of the digital pressure indicator, the actual pressure unit is shown. Finally, the maximum allowable pressure is also indicated on the gauge and will scale the gauge accordingly. The discharge pressure gauge is also a button linking to the “Gauge” page, where all active gauges are displayed. The dashboard K: The HOA Selector switch. The three positions indicate the actual position of the HOA, “HAND” for manual mode, “OFF” and “AUTO” for automatic mode. The controller should always be left in the “AUTO” position. L: Operations timers including the sequential start timer, the run period shutdown timer, the manual test timer, the weekly test timer and the AC Fail timer. M: An “AC” pilot light. It represents the condition of the AC power source. The light will be green if AC power is available and will become red if an AC failure is present. If the AC fail start option is active, the AC fail start timer will appear right next of the AC pilot lamp. N: This symbol appears when the membrane Stop push button is deactivated because of an active request. The only way to stop the engine when this appears is to put the HOA in the OFF position. O: The alarm/warning notification. Warning indicator: Exclamation mark in a yellow round icon.

Details of the Advanced Configuration Page

Volt-Current Calibration

Config > Advanced > Volt Calibration – Current Calibration

This page is used to calibrate all analog voltages. The actual column shows the actual value calculated by the ViZiTouch. The “desired” column allows a level 2 user to enter the desired value read from a calibrated external device (multimeter). For the AC voltage and the 2 DC voltage, the calibration is done by entering the desired value and pressing on the “COMPUTE” buttons. The DC values must be entered with no batteries connected, to allow the calibration of the battery chargers in the “power supply” mode. To do so, simply turn CB3 and CB4 to OFF.

This page is used to calibrate all analog currents. The first number right beside the Battery 1 and Battery 2 text shows the actual current reading. First, Set the CB3 Breaker in the OFF position. This will disconnect the battery. Press the ZERO button. Then, put the CB3 breaker back in the ON position. Connect a small charge to the 6 and 11 terminals, to create a low current around 2600 mA. Enter this value in the most left field of battery 1, and press the Read button. Then, connect a bigger charge to the 6 and 11 terminals, around 8800 mA. Write the measured value in the second text field, and press the second read button. Finally, press the COMPUTE button to complete the calibration. Repeat for the second battery, linked to CB4 Breaker and terminals 8 and 11. The small field at the lower right part of the page appears only if a level 2 user is logged in. It is the threshold, in Amps, to test if a battery is connected. This is amount the current in Amps has to rise during a boost test to

determine that the battery is connected. If a false battery failure alarms appears, it may be necessary to lower this value.

Timers Page Config > Advanced > Timers 1-2

Most common timers for fire pump control can be configured here. Note that any timer set to 0 will remove the delay in the decision process. Access level 1: - Engine starting and stopping: The main timers settings are the “Sequential Start Timer” (seconds), which allows a delayed response on an automatic start request, the “Run Period Timer” (minutes), which in case of an automatic shutdown controller sets the time before the controller will stop the engine when all conditions are back to normal and the “Fail when running Timer” (seconds), which allows a delayed response to a “Fail When Running” condition. Note that this condition, when active, will recreate a starting sequence to allow the engine to go back to the running state.

- Overpressure timer on: Time delay for the activation of the overpressure alarm, if used, - Underpressure timer on: Time delay for the activation of underpressure alarm, if used. - Low Suction Pressure alarm timer on: Time delay for the activation of the low suction pressure alarm, if

used.

The factory settings are always pre-configured at the factory and set the main parameters of the controller. Left Section: Automatic Controller – Non-Automatic Controller: An automatic controller will respond to automatic start requests, like a pressure transducer, a pressure switch, a deluge valve or a remote automatic start trigger. A non-automatic controller will only start the engine on manual requests. Pressure Actuated – Non-Pressure Actuated: A pressure actuated controller has at least one pressure transducer installed and will monitor the system pressure at all time. In an automatic controller, the pressure drop will trigger a starting sequence of the engine automatically. A non-pressure actuated controller is equipped with a pressure switch only. 2VIZ004 – 2VIZ016: These refer to older version of the IO Diesel Board. If the controller hosts one of these version, the corresponding check box must be activated. “Reset to Factory Settings”: This button redirects to the “Reset to Factory Settings” page. This is a major operation that must be used with care and only if the factory was contacted first. See the “Reset to Factory Settings” help for more details. Right Section: The first two settings set the nominal AC and DC voltage for the controller. The following section enables the “Engine RPM” counter. The connection must be made with the engine’s magnetic pickup using the "U" terminal on the GPD - IO board. If enabled, the “Teeth” parameter must be set according to the exact number of “teeth” on the magnetic pickup gear. This parameter will allow the ViZiTouch to calculate precisely the engine actual RPM with a fast refresh rate. The value will be shown in the upper-right corner of the homepage, over the symbolic “RPM” image. This is the only setting available to a “Level 1” user on the “Factory Settings” page. Technical information about the controller: Serial Number, Battery Charger Type, Model Name and Software Revision. Additional optional factory parameters: Most parameters defined here share the same type of configuration. The “Bell” icon, if activated, will trigger the alarm bell and the “alarm” icon, if activated will define this signal as an alarm, otherwise, it will be identified as a warning only. The “Weak Battery 1-2 Voltage” settings are configured to take action upon analysis of the battery 1-2 voltage. It will trigger an alarm/warning if the voltage read is lower than the value set.

The “Engine Low Coolant Temperature (312)” settings are configured to take action when the “312” terminal is used for electronic diesel engines that uses this signal. It will trigger an alarm/warning at the end of the programmable timer if enabled. Additional optional factory parameters The optional “Local Request Detection” can be Enabled/Disabled here, as the programmable delay used to trigger the detection. The delay sets the time before the ViZiTouch detects a “LOCAL” request. The “Local” request is defined by an active “Engine Run” input on the engine terminal strip “U” while no request was detected. In other words the engine was started locally on the engine control panel itself, without any request made by the ViZiTouch. ECM Warning (303): Settings are configured to take action when the “303” terminal is used for electronic diesel engines that use this signal. It will trigger an alarm/warning at the end of the programmable timer if enabled. ECM Fault (304): Settings are configured to take action when the “304” terminal is used for electronic diesel engines that use this signal. It will trigger an alarm/warning at the end of the programmable timer if enabled. Higher Zone Enable Delay: Delay, in seconds, after which a motor run signal is sent to a higher zone controller. This option is only used for controllers in series. Lower zone Request Maintain: Delay, in seconds, for which a run demand to a lower zone controller is maintained after all run causes has return to normal. This option is only used for controllers in series. LCD Backlight Dim Timer: The inactivity time it takes for the ViZiTouch screen to start fading out. This is done to preserve the durability of the screen’s backlight. It is factory programmed to 5 minutes. LCD Backlight Turn Off Timer: The inactivity time it takes for the ViZiTouch screen to turn off completely. It is factory programmed to 5 minutes. The inactivity timer starts if no “user actions” are detected on the screen or the membrane, the engine is not running and no alarms are “ACTIVE”. As soon as one of those conditions is met, the inactivity timer will reset. Low Ambient Temperature: Set-point for the low ambient temperature alarm. High Ambient Temperature: Set-point for the high ambient temperature alarm. The last page is the configuration for the MODBUS communication. The 2 fields allow the configuration of the Ip address of the ViziTouch and his subnet mask.

Reset to Factory Settings Page

This page will reset the ViZiTouch to the original factory configuration, thus clearing all subsequent configurations performed during the life of the controller. This procedure should only be used as a last attempt to bring back the controller to a usable state. User “Level 2”: The “RESET” button will be activated (will become blue) only if no square buttons from the left column are activated and the “Last Saved Settings” from the right column is not activated as well. A “Level 2” user can only reset the “Factory Settings” and/or the “Additional Settings” from the right column. The “Factory Settings” reset will restore the controller to its original factory configuration and service state. This means that the first service will be undone, automatic mode settings, as well as the controller’s “Homepage” will be deactivated until “First Service” is completed again. Please refer to the “Quick Start-Up” guide for more information on how to perform the “First Start-Up” and how to complete the “Field Acceptance Test Report”. Please note that all logs, pump curves and statistics will not be reset. The “Additional Settings” reset will update the controller with an additional configuration sent by the manufacturer. It does not perform a true “Factory Reset”. Its purpose is to allow an update of configuration variables that can only be updated by Tornatech Inc. All other square buttons on this page are “Level 9” security and can only be used by certified Tornatech representatives, unless otherwise specified. The first square in the upper left corner performs the “Select all” function for these parameters.

New Pump Curve Service > New Pump Curve

The Service Dealer “New Pump Curve” Procedure This page allows the user to create a pump curve. At the bottom of the screen, there are 3 buttons: - Reset: Clears the data of the pump curve in progress. - Auto: Uses needed types of transducers to create the pump curve (Discharge pressure, Suction pressure and Flow sensor need to be installed.) - Save: Saves the pump curve and update the pump curve chronological order as displayed in the “History > Pump Curves” page. The first line of the legend displays the system units for every column. The second row of the legend describes the parameters represented and the third line of the legend displays the actual value of these parameters for quick reference. The scroll bar on the right of the table allows the user to move downward in the table, up to the 10

th

point. The new pump curve data will become invalid if the Flow of Pressure units are changed during the input procedure or if no Flow or Pressure data is entered. In that case, click on the reset button. The Save button must be used in order to record the pump curve into the ViZiTouch memory. - Pdis: Discharge Pressure - Psuc: Suction Pressure - Pnet: The Net Pressure is calculated by subtracting the Suction Pressure from the Discharge Pressure. In Manual Mode, it must be entered manually. - Flow: Flow - Rpm: Rpm if enable or manually entered. “Manual Mode” To manually create a pump curve, data must first be entered on the first row and then on subsequent rows. There are a total of 10 rows available, but there is no minimum required to get a curve. Of course, more rows improve precision. In each column the user must input every following value for maximum information, readability and future reference. It is possible to create a quick pump curve, but it is not recommended since future references might be less accurate. In that case, only fill the Pnet and the Flow values. The first row of data must set the “Flow” to 0 and the last row of data must have a Pnet of 0. These values will ensure the pump curve is fully represented on the graph, for all pressure and all flows. When the required number of points are entered, just click on the “Save” button to record the pump curve and exit this page. You will be redirected to the “History > Pump Curve” page.

“Auto Mode” To automatically create a pump curve, the discharge pressure, suction pressure and flow meter must all be installed on the controller. -Click on the “Auto” button -A series of validation will take place to ensure all data is valid. -After a pre-defined timer, the ViZiTouch will acquire all data from all sensors and fill the first row of the pump curve table. The pressure must be stabilized before the samples are to be taken. The Pnet pressure will be calculated. -The ViZiTouch will then ring the Alarm Bell shortly, alerting the user to drop the pressure. As soon as the pressure is stabilized once again, the ViZiTouch will take the second row of values. -This automatic procedure will go on until the discharge pressure is near zero. -The ViZiTouch will then take the last row of samples and stop the Automatic mode acquisition. -At any point, it is possible to reset the recorded values and start the automatic mode sequence from the beginning. - Click on the “Save” button to record the pump curve and exit this page. The user will be redirected to the “History > Pump Curve” page.

Automatic Pump Curve Mode Disabled

The automatic pump curve was disabled because it needs three sensors installed. The three sensors buttons link to the corresponding sensor page, allowing a quick navigation. If the button is orange, this indicates that this particular sensor is not installed. If the button is blue, it means that this particular sensor is installed. It is always possible to quit the automatic mode by pressing the "Cancel" button.

In the ViZiTouch, all sensors refer to analog input connectors on the I/O board. They all have similar settings and configuration. The “Installed” selection (”Level 2” security): Install or uninstall this sensor from the ViZiTouch configuration. Discharge Pressure: To set the pressure system unit, go the “Config” page. All pressure transducers share the same unit. The “Source” button (4 choices): (“Level 2” security) - None: No pressure transducer or pressure switch is installed - PT1 (factory standard): Only the AI1 terminal on the “T” terminal strip is enabled. - PT2: Only the AI2 terminal on the “T” terminal strip is enabled. - AUTO (factory installed option): AI1 and AI2 are installed and arranged for a redundancy system. The ViZiTouch will always consider the lowest of the two pressure values as the reference. Additional alarms, like “PT fault detected” become enabled. This alarm is triggered when the two transducers provides values that are different by more than a pre-set delta value. The ViZiTouch will never make a decision as to which transducer is faulty; it will only reveal that there is a problem with one of them. The service dealer should test both transducers to find out which one is faulty. Suction Pressure: To set the pressure system unit, go the “Config” page. All pressure transducers share the same unit. The “suction pressure” sensor shares the same analog input (AI4) as the water level sensor. Only one of them can be installed at all time. Prior to installing one of them, the other one must be uninstalled by visiting its own sensor page. Flow: The “Flow” sensor shares the same analog input (AI3) as the spare temperature sensor. Only one of them can be installed at all time. Prior to installing one of them, the other one must be uninstalled by visiting its own sensor page. The “Unit” button is located just right of the “Installed” selection. Click on it to select the appropriate “Flow” Unit, the factory pre-set unit is the GPM. Flow Start: - Enable/Disable the “Flow Start” condition by pressing the square button. If this alarm is enabled, it will also start the engine by means of a “FLOW” request. - Alarm Bell Icon: Activates the bell when a “Flow Start” occurs. - Alarm Icon: If selected, the “Flow Start” event will be an alarm. If unselected, it will be a warning. - Value: Flow value at which the “Flow Start” event will change state. - Timer On: Timer used to buffer the activation of the “Flow Start” signal by the ViZiTouch. Water Level: The “Water Level” sensor shares the same analog input (AI4) as the suction pressure sensor. Only one of them can be installed at all time. Prior to installing one of them, the other one must be uninstalled by visiting its own sensor page. The “Water Level” sensor has no unit, since it is monitoring the “Water Level” as a percentage. Spare Temperature: The “Spare Temperature” sensor shares the same analog input (AI3) as the Flow sensor. Only one of them can be installed at all time. Prior to installing one of them, the other one must be uninstalled by visiting its own sensor page. The “Unit” button is located just right of the “Installed” selection. Click on it to select the appropriate “Spare Temperature” Unit, the factory pre-set unit is the Celsius. Fuel Level (GPD Model Only): The “Fuel Level” sensor has no unit, since it is monitoring the “Fuel Level” as a percentage. The Calibration method is the same for all sensors. CALIBRATION: The Calibration button: (“Level 2” security for the choice of calibration, but “Level 1” security for the calibration procedure itself.) There are 4 ways to calibrate every sensor:

Page 51: Operation, Installation & Maintenance Manual for Diesel ... · PDF fileOperation, Installation & Maintenance Manual for Diesel Engine Fire Pump Controller Automatic Controller Model

51

- 0-10V: Theoretical calibration with 0-10V sensor. Simply enter a value in the system pressure unit for 0V and another value for 10V. Click on the “Apply” button to confirm the calibration. The resulting measured pressure is shown in the lower right corner of the “Sensor” box. Make sure the dipswitch package right below the “T” terminals is set to “0-10V” for that particular sensor (refer to the drawing). The switches are labelled and are each linked to one analog input, in this case “1 or 2”. *Important Note: A set of jumpers is also associated with each analog input. MAKE SURE THE CONTROLLER IS COMPLETELY POWERED OFF BEFORE MOVING A JUMPER. THIS INCLUDES REMOVING THE AC AND DC POWER. The jumper can be placed on “5Vdc”, “12Vdc” and “Vaux” and represents the powered DC value of the sensor. The factory pre-set position is “5Vdc”. If an installed sensor has a power value of “5Vdc”, then the “0-10V” theoretical calibration must be calculated accordingly. Please contact manufacturer for more information. - 4-20mA: Theoretical calibration with 4-20mA sensor. Simply enter a value in the system pressure unit for 4mA and another value for 20mA. The procedure explained above also applies in this case. -Field Calibration: This is the factory pre-set method and the only one that is an actual calibration. Selecting this calibration method will generate the Calibration box situated in the lowest part of the sensor page. It is very important that the same care is used when selecting the appropriate dipswitch setting and jumper position. Please refer to the “0-10V” section above. 1.Two actual points (low and high) are required 2. Set the lowest point (usually 0). 3. Press the left read button 4. Press the left rectangle text field and enter the value read on the external calibrated gauge. 5. Set a high point (usually the highest possible value will create the best calibration). 6. Press the right read button 7. Press the right rectangle text field and enter the value read on the external calibrated gauge. 8. Press the calculate button to finish the calibration. If the settings are incorrect, the calculate button will remain red and if correct, the button will turn blue. The resulting measured value is shown in the lower right corner of the “Sensor” box. - On/Off: Use the input with a dry contact sensor, for example a float switch. The only parameter to set for this method is the NO/NC buttons, effectively selecting between a normally open and a normally close switch. Click on the “Apply” button to confirm the calibration. The Alarms Section: (“Level 1” security) The “DRY” button can enable or disable the “Dry Contact Input” on the IO board. There are two modes when enabled, either “Normally open, NO” or “Normally close, NC”. Each mode is represented by the standard NO/NC symbols. - Enable/Disable the corresponding alarm/warning condition by pressing the square button - Alarm Bell Icon: Activates the bell when the condition occurs. - Alarm Icon: If selected, the occurring condition will be an alarm. If unselected, it will be a simple warning. -RESET: Value at which the condition will go from the “ACTIVE” state to the “OCCURRED” state. -SET: Value at which the system will activate the corresponding condition.
